AAA Cards #114

A Tic Tac Toe challenge gives you many options for a card.  Here's the board for this week's AAA Cards.
I went with the diagonal from bottom left to upper right - flowers, one layer, colored cardbase. 
Using gray tone paper I stamped the PB flowers in Onyx Black and colored with my PolyChromos pencils.  After the coloring was done I restamped in the black.  In this instance I think it looked better before I did that.  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper. 

I need to send this card out.  Our neighbor lady who has always been so good to us, furnishing us with pies and cookies and vegetables when she still had her garden, passed away last week and her funeral was yesterday.  Her daughter asked Ken to be a pall bearer and I will send this card to her.  She also happens to be best friends with Ken's SIL so we had a little family reunion at the luncheon following the service. Both Ken's brother Larry and wife Sharon have multiple health problems and so we don't see them often.  It was good to have some time to catch up even under those circumstances.

After that we went to CMU to see my granddaughters while they were moving out of their college residences.  Even though my son said they didn't need help, they really did so I'm glad we could be there.  I also got to find out their plans for the summer and was glad to hear they are both looking forward to spending time with us at the lake. 

Thanks for dropping by today.  I hope your busyness still affords you some crafty time.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss Bobby. This is a lovely sympathy card.

  2. So sorry to hear that you needed this sympathy card, Bobby. This is beautifully colored with love and looks so elegant on gray toned paper!

  4. Oh Bobby! I'm so sorry to hear about your neighbor. I'm sure the family appreciated this gorgeous card.
    Isn't it wonderful that the weather is nice enough to begin Summer plans?!

  5. So sorry to hear of your loss, Bobby; your neighbour sounds like a very kind, generous woman. Her daughter will love this card; it's thoughtful, heart-warming and lovely. Great that you had some family catch-up time and how wonderful the news that your granddaughters have lake-time plans with you and Ken! Should be fun! We're currently in Oregon, heading back tomorrow (over the course of two days). Can't believe how quickly the time has flown....
